UK households waste 4.5m tonnes of food each year, worth £14 billion and equating to £700 a year for an average family with children. Even more food is wasted during production, distribution and at the supermarkets.
Let’s look at some more shocking statistics:
- 4 million apples go to waste each day
- 9 million eggs are discarded every day
- 970,000 onions are wasted daily.
But, beyond these statistics, how much time and energy do you put into thinking about, shopping for, preparing and serving meals? Would you like it to be quicker and easier?
I will work with you to reduce your food waste, save money on your food bills, be more efficient in the kitchen and make the most of the ingredients you buy.
One of the ways to achieve this is to meal plan (though I have lots of tips, tricks and titbits up my sleeve to share with you). I must have heard every excuse under the sun as to why people don’t do it and yet, the benefits far out weight all of those excuses. In fact, one lady who attended one of my Christmas meal planning workshops saved a whopping £300 on her food bill over the Christmas period compared to the previous year. What could you do with that sort of saving?
My ‘Making food (and your money) go further’ courses explore:
- How to meal plan
- Tips for better weekly meal planning
- Getting organised to make meal planning quicker
- Shopping more efficiently
- Making the most of the ingredients you buy
- Dealing with leftovers
- Stocking up
- Where to look for meal inspiration and recipe ideas.

Small group workshops
Workshops are held at my house in Bristol and run for 2 hours, usually including a light meal.
Unfortunately, all face-to-face workshops are currently on hold due to the Coronavirus lockdown restrictions. New dates will be scheduled once it is safe to host group meetings again.
A one-to-one course with me is truly bespoke to you and your family’s needs and situation. We can work in person at your house, at a time that suits you or via video call.
The additional benefit of my one-to-one courses is that we can take a deep dive into your kitchen and dining room, assessing how your kitchen organisation can work harder for you and how you can tailor your meal planning around your daily routines. I’ll show you how to develop healthier, happier and stress-free mealtime routines.
Please get in touch to let me know how you’d like me to help and we’ll take it from there.

“Huge thanks to Sarah for teaching me how to meal plan.
It has given me much needed structure, enabling me to shop for groceries just once a week.
Definitely something I’ll continue to do as it’s saving me heaps of time!” Angela
“The ‘Making food (and your money) go further’ online course has rescued me from spending too much on my weekly shop and having no motivation in the kitchen.
I now meal plan (something which I never did before). I am shopping more efficiently, and my cupboards have never been more organised.
Thank you so much to Sarah for giving me the skills and confidence I was lacking before.” Sharon
